start to finish: zachary
Meet Kid Jeweler Zachary! He’s 13 years old in this photograph.
Zachary began by designing the piece he wanted to make on paper and then figuring out how to actualize his design with wax. We were impressed!
After his design was complete, Zachary kneaded his wax to warm it and then folded it into a long rectangle.
Zachary then used the log rolling technique on his rectangle until he formed an even, elongated, wax ‘snake'.
Zachary cut up and assembled pieces of his ‘snake’ to form this Z. His sister’s name also starts with a Z so the initial is very meaningful in his family.
This is Zachary’s Z just before casting. We added the blue wax element at the top to function as the link that connects the Z to it’s bale. A bale is the piece that a pendant hangs from.
Zachary’s Z was high polished finished on a polished bead chain.
Proud papa David’s Z is was made from our Large Silver Pendant Kit.
